SJR8 • The House gave final approval to a call for including questions about safety around trains on driver license tests for new drivers.
It passed SJR8 on a 61-4 vote. The legislation previously passed the Senate unanimously. Joint resolutions that call for, but do not mandate, action are not sent to the governor for his signature.
The resolution's sponsor, Sen. Karen Mayne, D-West Valley City, a former member of the Utah Transit Authority board, said she pushed the resolution because too many accidents have been occurring in recent years around TRAX, FrontRunner commuter rail and other trains.
